8-year-old friends create bracelet business to help defy cancer

Finn, Liam, Grayson, and Wilkes, a group of 8-year-old friends from Hingham, Mass., were motivated to become Jimmy FundRaisers, supporting the Jimmy Fund in their community, after watching many friends and family members experience their own cancer journeys. They created their own business, Bracelets 2 Beat Cancer, and have worked together to create various rainbow loom bracelet designs that are sold throughout the community to raise money for cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

The Bracelets 2 Beat Cancer team has donated over $5,000 to support Dana-Farber’s mission to date, thanks to their hard work and support from their community. Hear from Finn, Liam, Grayson, and Wilkes about why they choose to support the mission of Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund:
